Hockey WC gets tax waiver

After giving tax breaks to Commonwealth Games, Delhi government has decided to waive off taxes for the Hockey World Cup to be held from February 28- March 13 at the Dhyan Chand National Stadium.

The government has decided to waive off all revenue collected as entertainment and luxury tax from the organisers of the tournament. This will cost the government exchequer Rs 6 crore.

Hockey India representatives had met Delhi Chief Secretary, Rakesh Mehta, earlier this month demanding waiver of entertainment tax on tickets and luxury tax on hotel rooms to be booked for delegates.

Earlier this month, the Delhi cabinet had waived off luxury tax to the tune of Rs 30 crore on hotel rooms booked by the Commonwealth Games Organising Committee for athletes, delegates, sport physicians and international mediapersons.
